Bob was a graduate of the 88th Class of the New Jersey State Police and retired at the rank of Captain after a successful, 30-year career. He then completed his career after 9 years with the Division of Criminal Justice.
Bob was a devoted husband to his high school sweetheart, Kathy. They were blessed with 3 beautiful children Scott, Craig and Ashley.

Well it's been a few days since I have heard of Bob's passing and the memories just keep coming. I met Bob junior year of HS and instantly became great friends. Driving to school together with Kathy and David everyday, and hanging out almost every weekend. Then came the National Guard and them long drives to Camp Drum every year. Two days in that gas tanker with never a dull moment. Our weddings and watching our children grow up. Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him knew what a great person he was. His wife children, Chris and Diane are in our prayers. Bob rest in peace.
